Chocolate Mousse Filled Strawberries

Chocolate mousse filled strawberries
Within the next week or so, North America will be going a wee bit nutty with parties and fireworks as we Canadians celebrate Canada Day on July 1st, followed by our neighbours to the south celebrating their nation's birthday on the 4th.

Given the number of BBQ's and picnics one may get invited to over the next few days I thought I'd try my hand at a little festive treat that's pretty easy to make, sweet, and tasty.

Chocolate Mousse Filled Strawberries

  • Strawberries
  • Chocolate Mousse
  • White Chocolate *
  • Candy melts
  1. Rinse your strawberries, and then core them as you'll be filling them with mousse. Leave the strawberries out to air dry. (The mousse won't stay put if the strawberry is wet)

  2. Make your mousse (I used this recipe. It makes a dark chocolate mousse which I thought would work well as the strawberries and white chocolate are quite sweet).
  3. Using a piping bag (or a plastic baggie with the corner cut off) fill your cored strawberries with mousse. I placed mine in an empty ice cube tray to ensure they stayed upright while the mouse set. Refrigerate until set.

  4. Once the mousse is set you'll need to melt your white chocolate or candy. I used white chocolate, but I found it a little harder to work with, so I'll use white candy melts next time.
    Carefully dip the top of your strawberry in your white candy. The heat will melt the mousse, so this may take a little trial and error or you can also use a spoon to pour the chocolate/candy on top of the strawberry. Place your strawberries on a wax-paper covered baking sheet and refrigerate until cool.
  5. The last step is decorating your culinary creation. Using candy melts in either red or blue, decorate the white part of your strawberry again with a piping bag or baggie. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
